bordered with bustling streets, the 'dalian planning museum' by austrian firm architects collective will become 
a gateway to the city center of dalian, china. the site redirects the converging main avenues of the urban grid while shifted 
and rotated floor plates respond to them, projecting the interior to the surrounding context. the skin is comprised of triangulated
transparent and opaque surfaces which passively shade during summer months and introduce daylight in the winter.

the building attempts to eliminate a disconnect with the city by placing balconies, bridges and terraces provide visitors
with opportunities. a spiraling vertical circulation around the building height atrium links the rotating galleries.
